Seminar Will Cover Privilege Issues In Insurance Relationships

Tuesday, January 1, 2008 - 01:00

The New York City Bar Association is planning a CLE seminar titled Preserving Privileges: Ethical Issues Confronting Insurers, Policyholders & Counsel.

The program will take place on Tuesday, January 22 from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. at the House of the Association, 42 West 44th Street, New York City.

This ethics-related program will address the difficult privilege issues that arise in the context of the policyholder-insurance company relationship. The program will explore defense-related common interests between policyholders and insurers, coverage-related common interests between policyholders and their creditors (sometimes including the plaintiffs suing the policyholders), and steps that lawyers and business people on all sides should take to ensure that communications intended to be privileged remain so.

The program will be of interest to in-house counsel, defense and plaintiffs counsel, insurance coverage counsel, and law firm attorneys involved in their firms' loss prevention and risk management programs.

The program chair is Stephen A. Weisbrod, Gilbert Randolph LLP.
